Friday again already which means it’s time for this week’s View From The Cab…
We start this week with SurfingTrucker who wished us a good morning from I-290 in Auburn, Massachusetts.
Rainerri1967 was on the A81 to Lake Bodensee in Germany enjoying / enduring ‘the normal traffic on Friday’.
…Later on and it’s raining on them even more as they’re in a downpour on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
Now we head to the other side of the globe, New Zealnd to be precise, where there’s no rain but snow! Vic Hicungerford (our fist member of the Tachoblog Tribe from NZ) was following a very cautious campervan driver down Viaduct Hill in the central North Island. The mountain in the background is Mt Ruapehu, which is the mountain called Mt Doom in the Lord of the Rings films…
…There was still snow when he was travelling along the Desert Rd a couple of days later in convoy with some more of his company’s tankers. Vic says that ‘the snow had compacted and was a bit icy so I’m keeping a respectable distance behind.’
One place where it wasn’t snowing or raining was Australia, from where TwoCrowsDown sent more of a View Of The Cab. He says ‘My new ride. It isn’t new but new to me. A huge improvement on the old blue girl! The bullbar is a little bent (!). Previous driver hit a cow and folded the bullbar back and the cow then spun around and headbutted the left side door on the cab. It’s going in the be fixed in a week and all the aluminium is getting a polish while it’s in the workshop.’ And, once it is out of the workshop, we’ll be adding her to our new ‘Owners Gallery‘.
…And once parked, they kept hearing chirping right next to their window & look what’s outside.
And as I’m sure you’re all wondering where Tachoblog’s own view is, we’d better explain…The youngest of the Tachoblog offspring decided to try and ‘eat’ the mobile phone this morning and it’s not been right since. Hopefully we’ll be able to join in again next week.
That’s it for this week’s View From The Cab, more next Friday.
